See how digital workplace tools supported by a cloud-ready network could cut your costs, empower your patients and give your staff more hours in the day
 
 
 
 
 
 

Transform NHS collaboration

Cloud collaboration tools can help create a much more efficient and streamlined healthcare system.

 

The apps typically include features like video conferencing, instant messaging, file-sharing and virtual whiteboards.

 

These allow your people to communicate, share patient information securely and coordinate care plans in real time.

 

And because these solutions run in the cloud, your staff can securely access them from anywhere with an internet connection, making it easier for health professionals in different organisations to collaborate.

Power your cloud collaboration tools
with care-ready connectivity

In healthcare, no two days are the same.

 

You need connectivity that’s ready for anything, with the kind of support and security that won’t let staff or patients down, wherever they are, whenever they need it.

 

By powering your workplace tools with a software-defined network (SDN), you get the simplicity of a centrally managed solution and the flexibility of a cloud-based approach.

 

And it seamlessly integrates with your existing systems and other medical facilities.

 

With central oversight of security and network performance, you can identify issues and optimise your network in real time.

Frequently asked questions

What is cloud collaboration?

Cloud collaboration allows employees to work together and collaborate on documents which are saved and synced to the cloud. The idea is to enable your people to share, edit, and view documents in real-time, for example coordinated care plans and patient data.

What is cloud communication?

Cloud communication involves the use of internet-based services for communication purposes, including messaging, voice, and video calls. These services are delivered via cloud infrastructure, so are accessible from anywhere. For example, you can run virtual consultations with patients at home.

What is cloud based telephony?

This refers to the delivery of voice communication services through the internet. It replaces traditional PBX systems with internet-based phone services hosted by a third-party provider.

 

This allows organisations to avoid the costs and maintenance associated with on-premises telephone systems.

How does cloud telephony work?

Calls are made and received via the internet using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. The cloud service provider manages the infrastructure, ensuring call routing, storage of voicemail, call recording, and other telephony features.

 

This allows users to make and receive calls from any device with an internet connection.

What is cloud computing in healthcare?

This refers to the use of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process healthcare data, rather than using local servers or personal computers.

 

This approach offers greater flexibility, scalability, and security compared to using local servers or personal computers, enabling healthcare providers to access and manage patient data more efficiently.
